>> so a new york paper called the journal news is under fire for printing the names and addresses of local gun owners. even adding a map that shows exactly where they live. some gun owners are ticked, which is wrong. because this article is the best argument for gun ownership ever. i mean, if you knew that an idiotic editor would out nongun owners, won you get a gun to protect yourself from the thugs? do you think he works for the nra. the paper made them the easiest marks. look at this map. what do you see? not just pockets of gun owners in red, but pockets without. how comfy would you be knowing your gun free area is now on line. but listen to the media talk about guns is like listening to a tree talk about algebra.
listen to celebrities speaking out on gun control. of all the problems j zoo has, owning a -- jzee has, owning a gun is not one of them. next time a liberal asks if you want a gun, return the question and preface it with the fact that the answer, once public, impacts his family's safety. but the best response is someone asking you if you own a gun, none of your dam business, but you are welcome to find out, and not by opening a paper. >> i -- that was naysing. it frightened me. >> since when did asking about guns not be a personal thing? when i was growing up, people in the neighborhood, it would be like asking your best friend how much money his dad made. it was just something you didn't bring up. and that in a sense created favor for everybody else because
nobody knew who owned one and who didn't. >> and right away i thought about its incredibly inappropriate to do. they are outing people who are exercising their constitutional right to own a weapon and to protect themselves and their families. think about the potential liability as well. what if they get robbed? homes are armed many times for the firearms contained there in. it happened to my brother's house in san francisco. that's something that happens and they know you have certain kind of weapons, they might come in and try to hit you. >> some people own guns because they are under threat and therefore you are actually publishing the address of somebody who might be under threat. >> the only people upset with this are the people who don't own gun. i have a gun, if you want to find out what the business end of that looks like, come through my house. it won't matter if i'm in the paper or not. the paper, in fact, that's the
point. letting people know you own a gun is a safety factor. putting it on the door this house protected by smith & wesson, the bad guys are going to go somewhere else. >> you know what it is, it reminded me when i was living in allentown, where you once hitched, people would put alarm signs on their houses when they really didn't have the alarm which ticked me off because i paid for my alarm. >> i had a car alarm. and i couldn't really afford it so i was one of those people. you are a former magazine editor. this is hardly irresponsible. there is a way to do this story like there always is. they could have done it like published the number of people in each town and went town by town. but it's basically i think also demonizing the gun owners, as well. this is a manhattan-based paper, a suburb. they always do this, they treat gun owners like they are sex offenders.
and now the liberal way is acceptance. this is let's identify the people who have guns but really it's just pitting i think neighbor against neighbor. >> like they are lepers or something or -- >> you guys are totally, totally -- i thought you were going to come out with a rant that said why did they do this? poor gun owners, but to the contrary you are saying great. >> yeah. >> i do think poor gun owners. >> and eric said i'm all for it because the bad guys will run in the other direction. you know why they did it. in the aftermath of connecticut, people think people with a lot of guns, it's a public safety issue. do i really want to live near people who have a bunch of guns and have an arsenal in the basement? >> what do you think is safer, the area with a lot of guns or no dots? >> i'm like you, i feel safer without guns. >> one city has three dots.
>> that suburb that -- >> legal dots. >> that's a good point. >> the one with three dots or the ones with the thousand dots is a lot more safe than the other. >> obviously not because the odds are that, eric, you are going to shoot your wife or your wife shoots you. >> no, he's not. >> the odds are the wife would shoot him. >> but i'm just telling you, that's what uses the gun. or guess what? adam shows up and he starts -- >> oh, bad guys. >> you are all these fantasies about bad guys. the bad guys, i wish they had dots for the bad guys who have guns. >> that's the that's the point. >> in my neighborhood it's the bad guys with the guns who are intimidating and killing and major. >> you just made my point. why are gun owners treated the same way sex offenders are? why do they have to collect the database and they monitor them? >> wait a minute, this is the government. >> they are outing them like they have done something wrong. >> no, no. you have a permit to own a gun.
>> it's a symptom. a greater disease. >> no, you have a permit to own the gun. the government said here, and it's freedom of information. >> would you be comfortable with your address outed? >> my address is. >> how about the writer ares of the journal news? >> the guy who wrote the article revealed he owns a gun. >> look, i'm in the phone book, i'm in the newspaper. i mean, you know the thing is for all of us. >> call me. >> thank you. >> but for all of us, there's a high degree of risk. one thing greg says on the show which is true, we are guarded. what people guard us? that's not the issue. so it's not that i'm anti-second amendment, i'm just saying let's be realistic. there's a public safety issue about people having too easy access to guns. >> you have it backwards. you have it backwards. if you took the whole country and did the same thing on the map of the country, the safest places to win would be the ones with a lot of dots on it, not the ones with no dots on it.
>> you are wrong. because you know what? i live in urban america, and 34 people a day die from gun injuries. >> well, uv the toughest gun control laws, don't you? dc has tough gun control laws. >> that's what i'm saying. we need to absolutely look at why access to guns is so easy. why in new york city where you said manhattan doesn't have the dots, why are there no many guns illegally flowing? >> because the bad guys get the guns. >> the city of chicago doesn't have dots and washington d.c.. >> violent crimes are exploding. >> that's what i said earlier. i wish they had a map with the bad guys who had guns. but where could they get the guns in they get them from states with lax gun control laws. >> no, illegally on the street because they don't want to commit a crime with a gun that's registered to them. let me tell you something, one case we had, and we had a gun thank you, mr. criminal, we called him stupid ring centering the gun and committing a crime
with the gun and we know exactly where we can find you. it doesn't happen. >> we need laws that make it harder to remove the registration numbers. >> they fire it off. they file it off. file the serial number and it's a gun that's clean they can't trace back and you have to do ballistic comparisons. >> they can close the good on a loophole -- >> is there a gun show "loophole?" >> yes do you want me to tell you what it is? >> yes. please do. you don't have a license to sell guns, you cancel a gun and you don't have -- he doesn't have to go through a background check. that's legal. it should not be. >> have there been major crimes committed by people who got guns at gun shows? >> i don't know. >> i don't know either. i want to read this. a lot of celebrities that come out for gun control, and one hasn't, jesse james, the motorcycle mow go with an infamous love life. i want to read a post from his
facebook that made the point for me. which he said the rights to self protection in the middle of all this death and violence in long beach, california, that's where he lives, my shop, west coast shoppers, was never robbed or broken into in 20 years. it was pretty common knowledge in my neighborhood i carried and would defend my business. isn't that the fact, when people know you have a gun. and they have done research, criminals are less likely to go to a place where they know it's armed. >> did you see a lot of gun violence in texas? not really because everybody has a gun. i want to make a point quickly about the celebrities. that ad you referenced in your monologue with jennifer aniston, and the others, they have started in movies with guns. the bounty hunters. but i find it interesting, they love to exercise their first amendment right, which they can, even if it's hypocritically, but they are doing it against the second amendment. you can't have one without the
other because if you start talking about taking away the second amendment, well, then that's a slippery slope. >> i want to say you also want to protect your first amendment rights. telling people they can't speak up and make that ad. >> i didn't tell them that, ad. in the ad they are speaking against the second amendment. >> let me continue. i don't think anybody wants to take away your second amendment right. supreme court affirmed you have a right to own a gun. i think it's headed in terms of the militia. you are not a militia. >> it's from the -- it's from another era. let me ask you something; freedom of the press outdated then? >> no. we still have printing presses. >> you can't make the other one. >> it's not true. >> as you know, i go to the gym every day for my quads. cnn is on at that time and they dad's the question how is this any different than posting the prices of your homes?
that's the dumbest question you ever heard in your life? >> that's cnn, for you.

debate on the fiscal cliff. they should be saying this. this is obama's economy. let the president and the democrats own it, lets them own the massive exploding national debt, let them own the tax hikes, let them own the defense cuts. instead boehner and the gaining are letth president to star his own superhero film. he's going to come back in and save us from the fiscal cliff while others are puffing marlboros. winning the optics war and winning it big. juan, how do you get the ball back from the democrats? they had it. next thing you know, the ball is in your court. >> i'm going to have to upset you, my friend. i think you are right. i think boehner is at the moment looking weaker. he's out of the talks all together at the moment. no role to play. his own troops have abandoned him. i'm told he's okay of keeping
the speaker ship on january 3rd when they vote but you start to hear rumors about eric cantor who you see next to him possibly launching some kind of -- but it seems to me he's in a position the republicans in the senate and the white house are really the ones who will negotiate this deal and potentially you have ten or twelve republicans in the senate that will pass something and throw it back to boehner and then it will be a question, will he have a vote? >> 32 bills passed the house that are sitting in the senate that will never see the light of day. >> it's ridiculous. you are playing basketball and you have five guys on your team and the other side has one player and you are still getting beat because you keep turning over the ball, that's what it seems like. i don't understand how think lost it already and i think they have. the fact it's been so mismanaged, there's been a leadership crisis, there hasn't been enough consensus in terms what have to do, there seems to be splits in the party on how to
approach this and they keep on losing ground and obama got to go on vacation in hawaii. lucky him. >> and if the bush tax cuts expire and president obama says, hey, republicans, look at this, tax cuts for everyone making under 250, can republicans say no to a tax cut in 2015? >> it will be tough but not tougher than the pr battles he's fighting right now. i think he wants that scenario. i think obama thinks going off the click is a win for him. he can say i am bringing in revenue, i am lowering the deficit. and he can still blame the gop when their tacks go up. i don't think the grass pollen had the ball in this fight. i don't think they gave it up, i don't think they ever had it. it's tough for them to win against a white house like this and a white house press core that's not going to report anything negative against the president. >> there's a ball and the ball is the debt ceiling.
all these things, i will get to craig, but have to go through the house. the money negotiations have to go through the house. if the house says no on raising the debt ceiling, they can create a lot of havoc. go ahead, greg. >> you know what? i don't care anymore. >> oh, okay. >> because as a human being in this discussion i've already lost, both options going over the fiscal cliff and not going over the fiscal cliff in my opinion are losers and that leads to the big lie. when the fiscal cliff preposition was made it was supposed to be bad for both sides. but remember high taxes and defense cuts, that's a democrat's sweet 16 party. they love that stuff. so saying there is all that damage is like saying sardine and milk is bad for cats. they will love this. and that shows how the democrats really pranked the republicans. the democrats are so good at politics. politics to them is like inmates making shivs. they do it all day. when it's the end of the day
they can stab you and republicans are going what just happened to me? i just got stabbed! that's what they do for a living. they are good at politics. >> according to the wall street journal on thursday boehner offered $600 billion or $800 billion in revenue increases and obama said those don't count, those are mine. what's up with that? >> what the president is talking about is three times that in terms what have he wanted for revenue increases. they are saying we will give you a third of that, and you know what, you have to count this as something we are giving you it negotiate with and so you have to give us something for it. the president is saying we already have substantial budget cuts in place and we are talking about serious, serious tax hikes. >> juan, just admit it, the fiscal cliff is not the fiscal cliff. it should be really called returning to the clinton era tax rates, which isn't that the democrats dream to return to the
clinton era tax rates? >> no. that was 39%. i don't think that's a big deal and not comparable to what the rates were under reagan or going back to even clinton. clinton was 39%. >> that's where we are going, 39%. >> what about this? every time bainner and obama gets close to a deal, obama moves the goalpost back. >> because he's playing hardball. he's going, republicans, i don't care about that, i get that for free. he's kind of the guy that came to play and staunch for his side. >> the american people, when you look at the policy, they think it's president obama who is willing to compromise. >> because he's able to fit it in. because he hasn't conceded anything. >> and who are the obstructionists? who is afraid to move? it's my ideology, i can't negotiate. and even if we go off the cliff we endanger the whole economy. >> again, the idea of add hearing to a principle sadly in
this world is seen as extremist, which is trying to limit government and cutting taxes. what obama has been able to do is shift the argument from cutting and spending to now spending and borrowing. cutting is even part of it. >> we have to leave it there. coming up, it's the day after christmas. you know what that means? all the bad kids going bad.

>> welcome back. it's been a rough couple months for republicans. they first lost the election -- i guess you can keep the music going. why not? now they are losing a deal on the fiscal cliff so there's no surprise they are losing hope for the future a new washington news poll says 70% of the gop is fearful about what lies ahead in 2013. all right. so let's take a look at this. 72% of republicans say they are very fearful wishes is up by double digits in what they were under president george w. bush and much higher, double digits up from 53% i guess when president obama took office. so, greg, are republicans just more grounded in reason so they are seeing the future as a real nail-biter because they are more focused, they get it more than liberals? >> conservatives in the republican party are like vampire killers.
the liberals are generally hate the vampire killers because they are the bloodsuckers. so obviously the republicans are terrified the government is expanding and they are pessimistic about it where the liberals are hopeful because the vampires have the keys to the blood bank. >> did you you just watch "twilight?" >> i just watched "let the right one in" a finish vampire movie which is why that is on my head. >> you are very dark today. >> i'm sorry. >> democrats are more hopeful to the future. i guess they think good things will come and i guess noah's neighbors were hopeful for the future to. >> their guys got in and they are dreaming of little entitlements dancing over their heads at night and dreaming. i would be happy too. and people that have to pull out their wallets to pay for things,
like the mortgagor the rent and electric and all that, then you have some woes, you have some worries. look at the numbers for the holiday shopping, the worst in four years. what does that tell but the level of optimism across this country? >> juan, are you in denial about the future? >> i must be. because i think consumers have been pretty optimistic. the latest numbers aren't so great because they are a little down but consumers are driving the economy and the christmas season shopping. the retailers aren't down about it. >> i think you are a christmas hog, you are drinking out of beckel's glass. >> that can't be good. >> i think a lot of republicans are just -- i think they were living in a bubble and now they are depressed and they are sad. but it has no connection to any reality. >> eric, eric, are you sad? >> no. i'll explain the numbers. i'll give you the number exactly, 27%, right? >> yep. >> here's how it breaks down. assuming, it's probably because of this, the republicans on the right you have very staunch conservatives and you have
establishment, kind of squishy contracts. and 50% and half are worried and you come up with 72 to 75% of people on the right are worried about what's to come. and the people, the 100% of the real conservatives are right because what's to come could be really ugly. >> the new york times i guess is wishful thinking. they are in denial. they have an argue out talking about how the tea party might not be over but republicans are caving on three issues, one is gun ownership, two is taxes and the other is immigration. on the tacks point i'm thinking if the new york times were accurate, won we have a deal by now in washington? >> they are nothing but vampires. >> oh, my god! >> no. what i love, the times and wishful thinking, how the tea party doesn't have influence, but they have been saying that
about the tea party since they started. they have been look at the law-abiding locals and seeing them as bigoted crazy people when all they have been doing is sticking to one principle which is limited government. meanwhile they look at something that has no principles like occupy washington and they are basically mold. >> republicans might have reason to fret, their leader, speaker john boehner, his approval rating is lower than that of nancy pelosi, who is a vampire, i actually think. it's 51% boehner unfavorable and pelosi 50%. juan, you said something earlier you have been hearing that boehner is safe. i've actually been hearing the opposite. i like john boehner, i think he has a tough situation on his hands. he's trying to heard cats. i don't agree what he did the other day, why he had put a bill on the floor he doesn't have support for. you think he won't hold on? >> no, i think he will hold on.
i don't know if it's coming but at the moment i don't think there's enough time before january 3rd to really line up. what happened to john boehner, i thought -- >> and he thought he had the votes. >> his troops abandoned him. >> ken next mccarthy should go down for that. he's the whip. he should know how many votes he has. >> no, he works for boehner. >> but he goes back with the information about how many votes he has. that was a mess. >> but the whole dynamics didn't make sense. it goes back to something eric said. everybody on the far right said why am i going to put a vote in place that's not ever going to come to reality? >> ihy even talk about it? >> and it will open up the door on the right for someone to run against me in the primary. >> exactly. and the true conservative that doesn't want taxes to go up anyway, they won on it in 2010 or earlier, would put their name on a vote to raise taxes if they knew it wouldn't go to the senate? never! >> here's where you and i differ. you have to negotiate and compromise if you care about the
country and the economy at some point. you say i've been elected, but let's govern. >> but is obama willing to negotiate? >> is the senate willing to negotiate? >> no matter what you put up there, if it doesn't start with $250,000, it's not going to pass. >> wait a second, obama went up to $400,000. >> what's he done on entitlements? >> he did the change cpi that would bring it down. >> that's not true. >> no. listen, he did nothing. john boehner has conceded some things. the last move, not a smart one. >> can we talk more about vampires? >> we can. only during the commercial break. >> oh, okay. >> and now a word from our sponsor. is it okay to fire an employee for being simply irresistible? greg has had this problem over and over but he is still here. we will tell but it next. >> after working so many years side by side, i didn't have any idea that that would have crossed his mind.

>> i wish you would have gotten me a soda stream instead of pictures of back-to-back christmases. >> but i know what you would use it for, cleaning your gutter. >> oh, okay. for christmas i got a beautiful purse from my mother-in-law, and it's an antique purse. looks like a little silver box. >> you are not taking it back? >> no, no, i love it. it's gorgeous. i got that, and i got some perfume from my ex-husband's girlfriend. >> wait a minute, your -- >> my former mother-in-law -- >> but the husband's ex-girlfriend felt the need to give you a christmas present? >> it was very nice. everyone exchanged nice gifts. >> that's a fascinating gift exchange. >> we had a modern family christmas. it was adorable. >> she gave you future counseling? >> greg, what did you get? >> in my apartment we had an amazing feast. we exchanged gifts. by we i really mean me. and by everyone it was all my stuffed animals that i had
